Statement of Significance (as of designation - April 15, 1970):
An excellent example of a late Georgian five-part plantation house, His Lordship's Kindness was built by the Earl of Shrewsbury as a wedding gift for his niece, Ann Talbot, when whe married Henry Darnall III.

Condition:
Ongoing restoration would be of great benefit to the continued preservation of this original grouping of structures. Roofing of the mansion and its outbuildings are the top priority. Archaeology would benefit interpretation, because the site, dating to 1730, has never been explored.
